Hi, I have been struggling with hackintosh for a long time and once I found out about Niresh's distros I started to have hope again.
I have tried in the past Niresh's OSX 10.8.5 but every time I finished the installation and got to the first boot i got a still waiting for root device error  I have tried everything to get past of this but I can't [NOTE: I used this guide too https://www.hackintoshzone.com/page/apple/articles/fix-osx-hackintosh-still-waiting-for-root-device]
I managed to install Niresh's osx 10.9.0 but now that I boot using the usb (yes the instillation was in a usb) I got a kernel panic!!
I tried some combinations of those boot flags: npci=0x2000 npci=0x3000 UsbBusFix=Yes cpus=1 [to get to the instillation I always use amdfx kernel] but nothing worked I am desperate!! I can't get a pic of the kernel panic but as soon as I take one I will upload it.


I  use chameleon boot-loader because clover doesn't load the mouse&keyboard


HERE'S MY SPECS:

HDD: Seagate Barracuda ST 3000 DM 3TB ( GUID partition table OS: Windows 8.1 and this is where I want osx to go too)

CPU: AMD FX 6300 Six-Core 3.5Ghz

GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GT 610

RAM: 10GB (diffrent capacities 1GB-1GB-4GB-4GB 669,7 MHz)

MOTHERBOARD: Gigabyte 970A-DS3 (Rev. 1.0 I think)

(for more detailed info here is my speccy url http://speccy.piriform.com/results/HQjhtOMzRyYb6nuZOvSt8vk )

Sorry for my English

What is the size of your Mac partition? Anything over 1TB is going to be a problem.

Make it 300 GB, you can always access the Windows portion in finder.

my partitions are like this:

-1.27TB [before ntfs named LIBS the installer renamed it EFI and (propably) installed chameleon in it hfs+ ---- installer deleted all my data on this partition but I didn't have anything special
-101GB names OSX where my hackindosh will be hfs+ journaled
-244GB where Windows 8.1 is installed ntfs
-0.98TB named DATA ntfs

 

thanks for the fast response!

Your RAM settings can cause problem later with any OS. Never mix 2 different category RAM. Always confuses the OS.

 

Boot with -v -x debug=0x144

 I tried using those boot args and I got stuck at "kdp_poll:No debugger service" here's a pic   1397896076__img_20140419_111407.jpg

 

when i don't use those boot args, just with -v i got this  1397895990__img_20140419_111025.jpg

 

I also tried removing the 1GB ram's using only the 2 x 4GB ram's (both kingston)  but still the same :(

Boot using -v -f amdfx

Still the same :(

BTW I can boot to the installation only can't boot the installed system !!( amdfx kernel is only at the installation USB so no-need of entering the amdfx kernel flagflag)

Can you mount this OSX drive on your current windows?

 

I doubt its AppleIntelCPUPower**.kext (2 kexts).

 

Wait for AMD users to reply a better solution.

    • I get this message no matter what I do, I've tried changing my SMBIOS to a newer model to no avail. Anyone no how to get the second install boot to work?
    • This is my first time doing Hackintosh. I've several other machines running Mac using UniBeast and Multi beast. I wanted to try Hackintosh Vanilla. So far, no luck. I followed the Guide and MacPwn Mojave Guide. 
    • Hello! I wanted to install MacOS High Sierra, but the SSD does not appear in Disk Manager. I have a Samsung Pro 840 250GB. Is there a Driver for Intel Gigabit 82579LM Network LAN for MacOS High Sierra?
    • This is my very first post and have looked around the forums to my question but I wasn't able to find the exact specifics that I need. This is my very first windows/mac dual boot project. I chose to attempt high sierra and I hope I am posting in the correct area. High Sierra seemed to be the newest that is possibly more stable than Mojave so I chose that. I'm reaching out to the more advanced builders and experienced people. I'm currently running Win 10 as of now and bought a separate SSD to install a macOS on. Before I invest time and energy into this. I'm wanting to get the best recommendations on what OS I should choose , if my hardware will be up for the task and my best plan of attack. I'll be honest I'm not ready to bang my head on the keyboard for hours. I've been there and done that.  My hardware was some of the best at its time in 2011 and I'm not 100% confident it will work with a more up to date macOS I'm also concerned about drivers for my GPU.  All input is welcomed   Here are my current specs:   CPU
